Audi tests gesture control for virtual assembly

Audi tests gesture control for virtual assembly
Pre series development: Three years before the start of production, Katharina Kunz and her colleagues check virtually whether the assembly of a component is feasible.
  • Premium carmaker simulates vehicle assembly in 3 D environment
  • Employees move components in virtual space with intuitive gestures
  • Basis: technologies from the gaming industry

Even before Audi produces the first prototypes of a new car, engineers in the Pre Series Center check individual assembly steps in a 3 D projection. They assemble components virtually, thus determining whether this process is feasible and ergonomic for the employees on the production line. As part of a pilot project, they are now for the first time moving the components in the virtual space using simple gestures.
